I get a fair number of emails from people wondering why No No reviews are so divergent- some just rain glowing praise upon the device, while other reviewers seem to feel it just didn’t deliver. Well, if you look at the dates on these reviews, you’ll realize that at a certain point, the reviews went from good to bad. This is because they actually released a newer, improved device- the NoNo 8800, which people unfortunately still confuse with the older, more busted No No Classic. So here is a quick list of 5 reasons why the NoNo 8800 is awesome!
(BTW, if you’d like a more in depth look at the product and my experience with it, you should check out the review on it I wrote for the site, which you can find right here.)
1. The Form Factor Is Right
The original No No was, to put it bluntly, a brick. It was relatively comfortable to hold, but to do a side by side comparison is to see a huge difference. The newer 8800 model is more streamlined, so it’s easier to reach any part of the body with the Thermicon tip. The new one also has a nice, useful display on it to help you along.
Both the original and the new one are cordless and rechargeable. If you’ve ever used or read reviews of products like the Tria or Silk’n SensEpil, you know that the cord can be annoyance that gets in the way and makes it difficult to reach some areas. No such problem with the NoNo.
2. It Just Works!!!
The biggest complaint about the Classic version was that it frankly just didn’t do what it was supposed to, which is remove hair! I mean, it did, but people were typically only getting hair removal in the range of 50% or so, which is really lousy. I don’t want to have to shave AND use the No No! The newer version is simply much more effective, and will wipe out just about all the hair.
3. It’s Easy And Comfortable
When I first got the thing, I was worried it would be difficult to use, but it’s incredibly easy. At least as easy as shaving! All you do is hold the NoNo in your hand and slowly roll its Thermicon tip along your skin. I usually do it while watching TV. The process is even easier than the Tria, which requires you to hold it on each tiny patch of skin for a moment as the laser flashes.
And it’s not just that it gets rid of hair easily, it also does it painlessly! I used to wax occasionally for longer hair removal than what shaving offers, but dealing with that excruciating pain was a huge trade off that prevented me from doing it regularly. The comfortable, gentle heat of the NoNo is no big deal at all!
4. The Results Really Last A Long Time
Have you ever gone 2 months without shaving? I’m guessing that even if you haven’t, you have a pretty good idea of just how hairy you’d end up by the end of those two months.
With the NoNo 8800, you have to start using it relatively frequently. In fact, if you want to get results fast, you should probably use it at least a couple times a week. However, after a few months, the effects build up.
After using it regularly for a while, your hair will be coming back so slowly you’ll only need quick touch-ups every couple months to stay hair free!!!
5. It’s Safe To Use On Your Face
While some people were using the original No No Classic on their faces, the company was telling everyone not to. While there is some debate about how safe it actually is or was to use the Classic for facial hair, there is no question about it with the NoNo 8800- it is improved for use on any part of the body, including the face!
I’m really trying to keep this article nice and short, but I can honestly think of a bunch more reasons why NoNo 8800 is awesome (it works for anybody, it’s quick, it’s portable, and it comes with a 60-day money back guarantee, for starters). I’ve been really happy with it, as have an ever growing number of users. If I’ve got you interested, you should check out my review on it. If you’ve already tried it, we’d love to about your experience, good or bad, so join the conversation and leave a comment below!
